One scandal I can't ignore

A Republican-linked company has been doing a variety of voter registration activities around the country that range from the highly sleazy to the completely illegal. The worst that I've seen so far is that they've been getting people to fill out voter registration forms, then destroying those forms if the voter seems to be a Democrat. The voter shows up to vote, only to find out she isn't registered.

There's too much on this for me to rant about right now, but plenty of good bloggers are all over it: DailyKos, You Will Anyway, Josh Marshall, and I'm sure many, many more. If you want the minute-by-minute blow-by-blow, DailyKos will probably be the best.

In any case, this is a huge story, with the possibility that thousands or tens of thousands of voters may be disenfranchised.
